In this week’s edition of Behind The Readers’ Forum, The Blade welcomes letter writer Barbara Hannon to discuss her recent letter. 

VIDEO: Toledo has grown tremendously over the last 40 years

Here is the text of Mrs. Hannon’s letter:

Returning to Toledo after 43 years has been a nice surprise.

When we left, Toledo was going through a time of unrest and fear. Store windows were broken, and fear was pervasive.

My return has been a pleasant experience — seeing new businesses, shopping at the stores, and exchanging greetings and smiles with everyone I meet.
